Andy Murray advanced to the semifinals of the Monte Carlo Masters by beating Milos Raonic 6-2, 6-0 Friday.

The second-seeded Murray, who was inconsistent in his previous two matches, did not face a break point against the big-serving Canadian.

Murray will next face either eight-time champion Rafael Nadal or 2014 champion Stan Wawrinka.
